Mud Matters.

Dr. Lauren Kinsman-Costello

I am an ecosystem ecologist interested in the effects of hydrology on aquatic nutrient biogeochemistry and ecosystem function.
My research aims to inform larger questions about the resilience of ecosystems faced with environmental change and the ability of humans to manage, restore, and create ecosystems.
A recurring theme in my research is the role that sediments play in freshwater ecosystem function (hence, mud matters).
